AirCards: The facts

If you are travelling by plane often, you probably already have at least one air card. If you don’t, you should definitely consider getting one, even if you are not a frequent traveller. Almost all airline companies have their own mile reward scheme. Some may offer you a credit card or other kind of reward bonuses, and there are also airline companies in collaboration offering you even more privileges. Read the following article, and find out all that you need to know about the airline mile cards.

What are the air cards?

Air card or Airline miles card (you can find many more cards with similar names depending on the airline company) is a card that looks like a credit card. You can use your air card every time you travel, by entering the number displayed on your card when you book your ticket, or by displaying your air card when you check in or by doing both (again, it depends on the airline company).

What are the airline miles credit cards?

Airline miles reward is probably one of the most common rewards that you can gain from your credit card. You can apply for the credit card at the bank, at the airline company or by using the official websites of the bank, or the selected airline company. Benefits
Certain airline companies also allow you to apply for their airline miles credit card during your travel or at the airport. If you have an airline miles credit card, you simply use it as a regular credit card. The difference is that, from every purchase or from some of them, you gain points that are converted into airline miles.

What will you gain from your air card?

When you collect the necessary amount of miles, you can request for your free airline ticket. You can book your free ticket like any other regular ticket, either by contacting the airline company or by using its website. In most cases, you get other privileges as well, such as extra baggage allowance, or no queue waiting.
Additional information
It is important to note that every airline company has its own air miles reward scheme, which means that you have to use the appropriate air card according to the company you are travelling with. Yet nowadays, there are many collaborations between airline companies worldwide that allow you to gain miles from travelling with a certain airline company which you can use in the other companies as well.
